While there is abundant evidence to show the post-proto Canaanite script exists in the Southeast region of Colorado, perhaps the most striking similarities between this region and the Sinai area (in Southern Israel) appear in the letter "A" (alef). The archaic form of this letter was drawn as the head of a horned bull. This form was later shortened to the Hebrew "alef" which resembled the rotated Roman letter "A."
Even in scripts which use the old Hebrew alphabet, the archaic (horned bull) form was used when writing the name of God, i.e. Alef+Lamed = EL.
Above we have supplied pictures from the Har Karkom region of the Sinai (Negev) desert and have compared these to a representative example found in Colorado. They are virtually identical.
In the Sinai example shown (left and bottom), the bull's head is drawn abstractly and appears almost round. Compare this to the Colorado script found at www.viewzone.com/comanche.html. This circular form was later abstracted even further, resulting in a circle for the "alef" and a simple vertical line representing the "lamed." This "phi" sign is the most common representation of "EL" found in the Southeast Colorado region [example shown at right].
Certainly the evidence of an old world script in America deserves some scholastic attention, yet this has been significantly lacking. Deference to indigenous Native Americans, the local ranchers and political considerations play a role in this lack of inquiry. We again welcome academics to work with us in exploring this discovery.
